to speak about taxes, debt and spending. it's time for president obama to show leadership, real leadership, on the biggest threat that america faces to our future prosperity. as my good friend, the republican leader, has said, if we don't get a handle on spending and debt, not much else matters. it has now been 1,371 days, almost four years, since democrats who control the united states senate have brought a budget to the floor and had a vote on and passed the budget. over that time our national debt has grown by more than $5.2 trillion. our credit rating has been downgraded because of fears that we may not be able to pay our debt back when it is ultimately due. and we have experienced the highest -- excuse me -- the longest period of high unemployment since the great depression. since the end of the official recession in 2009, americans' household median income has fallen by roughly $2,500, while the cost of employer-provided family health insurance has increased by more than $2,300, roughly a comparable amount. not only has income fallen by $2,500; costs have gone up thanks to obamacare

corker do republicans want to gut social security and medicare? does president obama want to destroy the republican party? >> obviously republicans want to make sure the entitlement programs are here for future generations. right now for every dollar we spend on young people we are spending four dollars on seniors. right now in medicare the average person pays for one third of the cost of the medicare program. now, dick durbin for what it is worth has been one of those people willing sit down and solve that problem and i congratulate him on that. as far as the president's goal of annihilating the republican party. i will say that i was glad to see that the house was unified behind something recently as it relates to the fiscal issues and i think that is a backstop to that. the fact is the one thing the president didn't mention in his speech was the major fiscal issue that our nation faces. it was everything but that and to me that was disheartening. it is the one issue that before anything else we need to put in the rear view mirror to make our country stronger. >> chris: senator dur

-building here at home, something that not just candidate obama, but also candidate romney, agreed about. we are looking at unprecedented cuts in spending on national security. we are looking at the prospect of drawing down from afghanistan. we are looking at a lot of changes. not just here in the united states, but in the world. one of the questions i know that we have is whether we are ready for the exchanges. i suspect that most of us believe we are not. tom, make -- maybe you could start as out and talk about the sequestration that paul ryan told us this weekend is going to happen. >> it is a prediction that at this point seems like a certainty, but i would argue it has been a near certainty once beat sequestration provision was written into the budget control act. i will talk a bit about sequestration per se, but i would regard it as a symptom and not the disease itself. the disease itself is erosion to the point of vanishing, almost, of the bipartisan political consensus for military string, for peace through strength, as people used to say. that is really something that over the cours

and booming spending cuts. meanwhile, a private survey shows u.s. businesses increased hiring in january compared with a revised december reading. adp said employers added 192,000 jobs. the increase in hiring occurred after congress and the obama administration reached an agreement on january 1, avoiding sharp tax increases and across the board government spending cuts. the chairman of the senate judiciary committee sent in his prepared statement that closing loopholes in the background check system for gun purchases will not run firearm owners said mmm rights to own a gun and is a matter of common sense. after the killing of student and staffers in connecticut it is time to stop recriminations on the subject. the senator says the background checks would mean a strengthening by law anyone buying a gun from a licensed dealer must have a background check infected killers and people with mental problems barred from purchases. the senate judiciary committee hearing on guns begins it 10:00 eastern time. here is live on c-span radio or watch live on c-span. those are some of the latest headlin

to represent american national security and keep the peace. and i worry that president obama has picked senator hagel because really the defense department is the only part of the government that he seems to be willing to cut. he's not really interested in reining in spending in almost any other area except national security. he said the sequester, which is the $1.2 trillion in cuts that are scheduled to go in effect, which disproportion athlete affect defense spending, the president said during the campaign, ain't going to happen of the well, it's going to happen. it's going to happen here in about six weeks. >> steve: before you go, something that looks like will happen is it looks like it's bipartisan plan to reform immigration. what do you think? >> i hope so. we'll hear from the president this week, but it really requires presidential leadership, like so many of these issues, because it's easy for people to sort of get off in their corner and argue their particular agenda. but it's hard to come together on big complex -- >> steve: so it's up to the president? >> it's up to all of us, but t
